Revenge (2011) Season One, streams from netflix.
There is only one super power, unlimited wealth. When you are super rich you get the other superpowers: perfectly pretty youth and awesome hacker ability.
This series, at least the first season, is first class trashy fun – as are the Jacobean plays on which it's modeled, such as Hamlet, The Spanish Tragedy, and particularly the extravagant The Revenger’s Tragedy – though the television version of this wildly popular form of Renaissance drama is missing the obscenity and signature consciously comic effects of that later development.
This series’ first season is the Evil Stepmother and Snow White, with a strong dash of Glenn Close's Damages’s play with the narrative's chronology. We also have the now requisite competing boyfriends: Team Daniel and Team Jack.
It may be difficult to keep a veneer of plausibility past this first season. Once we know it all and the protagonist’s antagonists have been punished, where do you go? The following seasons become pointless shifting of relationships and motivations: now we’re good after all, now we’re bad again -- losing the sizzle of the first season. That’s what happened with Veronic Mars. There’s a reason that Revenge was called the first contender to take the place of Lost, which, in the end, went nowhere.
Second season of Lost, er, Revenge starts at the end of this month.
